Coney Island Death Watch: Zipper & Spider Are Gone

Zipper and Spider

Something tells us it is going to be a very, very sad fall and winter in terms of watching Coney Island rides and attractions being dismantled and demolished on property owned by Thor Equities and developer Joe Sitt. Both the Zipper and the Spider rides were dismantled yesterday and driven away on flatbed trucks and some media was on hand to record the scene. The rides will find a new life in Honduras.

This whole thing really just breaks my heart! I don't see how this can happen to such a historical place. Just shows you that if you have the money; you can basically get away with murder in this fuckin' country.
